I cannot be more excited to be doing this event again. Last year was rainy, but the spirit of the DA BIRDS was in full affect for this great cause. You may be thinking: "Well Alex isn't really into football...." That maybe sorta true, but Eagles put Philadelphia on the map last year, but also have been for years in ways you may not know. The owners of the team are long-time supporters of Autism research. For many years they have put money towards this cause here at CHOP and other Autism research centers across the city.
On May 18, 2019 I will join the entire organization and thousands of others from the community to ride, run or walk in the Eagles Autism Challenge!!!
This event is dedicated to raising funds for innovative research and programs to address the complex issues presented by the condition of autism. By providing the necessary resources to thought leaders, we can advance scientific breakthroughs. All participant-raised funds, 100 %, will go directly towards autism research and/or programs at beneficiary partners, as together we shift from autism awareness to action. I hope you will consider making a donation towards my fundraising goal to help transform the lives of those affected by autism today and tomorrow.
This year I am pledging to raise $2,500 and I am going to ride the 50 miler! Please support this great cause :-D
